THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE SAYS GOVERNOR MARTINEZ DID NOT BREAK ANY LAWS USING THE STATE HELICOPTER TO GET TO A POLITICAL EVENT. THE STATE POLICE HELICOPTER WAS SUMMONED IN NOVEMBER OF 2011 TO GET MARTINEZ TO THE SUNPORT, SO SHE COULD CATCH A COMMERCIAL FLIGHT TO TEXAS FOR A GOVERNOR'S ASSOCIATION FUNDRAISER. TODAY THE GOVERNOR SAID AGAIN, THAT A STATE BOARD OF FINANCE MEETING RAN LATE... AND THE HELICOPTER WAS NEEDED TO GET HER THERE ON TIME. "SOME VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES WERE COMING UP THAT INVOLVED UNM THAT I NEEDED TO STAY AT BUT IT WASN'T MOVING FAST ENOUGH AND THE FASTEST CATCH A PLANE A COMMERCIAL PLANE WAS TO GET ME THERE BY HELICOPTER" . ALTHOUGH THE A.G'S OFFICE FOUND NOTHING CRIMINAL.. THEY DID SUGGEST IN A LETTER THAT MARTINEZ' CAMPAIGN REPAY TAXPAYERS THE 800 DOLLARS IT COST TO OPERATE THE HELICOPER. ATTORNEY GENERAL GARY KING IS ALSO RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR.

HERE ARE ONLY TEN DAYS LEFT IN THIS YEAR'S LEGISLATIVE SESSION. THERE'S STILL NO SOLUTION IN SIGHT FOR THE LOTTERY SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THOUSANDS OF NEW MEXICO COLLEGE STUDENTS. STUART DYSON IS LIVE IN SANTA FE... WHERE LAWMAKERS HAVE SPENT YEARS WITHOUT COMING TO ANY AGREEMENT ON HOW TO KEEP THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND FROM GOING BROKE. RIGHT NOW-- ONE SENATE COMMITTEE IS HOLDING UP A HALF A DOZEN LOTTERY BILLS - TRYING TO NAIL TOGETHER SOME KIND OF COMPROMISE - THERE ARE MORE BILLS IN THE HOUSE - BUT NOTHING APPEARS TO HAVE THE LEGS TO MAKE IT TO THE FINISH LINE - WHICH IS NEXT THURSDAY AT NOON. THE SAD FACTS - LOTTERY TICKET SALES INCOME IS FLAT - MORE STUDENTS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SCHOLARSHIPS - AND TUITION KEEPS GOING UP AND UP - THERE'S NO AGREEMENT ON WHAT TO DO - RAISE GRADE REQUIREMENTS - ESTABLISH FAMILY INCOME LIMITS - CAP THE AMOUNTS INSTEAD OF JUST FLAT PAYING WHATEVER THE TUITION IS THIS SEMESTER. LAWMAKERS - EVEN THOSE WITH LOTTERY BILLS SAY THEY EXPECT TO JUST APPLY ANOTHER BAND AID TO THE AMPUTATED LEG AND KEEP IT GOING FOR ANOTHER YEAR. " EVERY ONE OF YOUR VIEWERS HAS AN IDEA HOW TO FIX THE LOTTERY SCHOLARSHIPS - TO GET IT THROUGH THE LEGISLATURE? - EVERY LEGISLATOR HAS THEIR OWN IDEA AND SOME ARE POLITICALLY POPULAR AND SOME AREN'T BUT WE'VE NEVER GOT A BILL THAT GETS TO SOLVENCY." " WE CAN'T KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD ANY MORE - WE NEED TO BE SURE THERE'S MONEY IN THE BUDGET AS A FAIL-SAFE TO GUARANTEE TO EVERY NEW MEXICO KID THAT AT LEAST FOR THIS CALENDAR YEAR THE AWARD WILL NOT SUFFER OR NOT REDUCE." ABOUT 14 THOUSAND NEW MEXICO COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE ON LOTTERY SCHOLARSHIPS RIGHT NOW - MORE THAN 80 THOUSAND SINCE THE PROGRAM STARTED BACK IN 1996. TEN DAYS TO GO - IS THERE TIME? - REMEMBER LAST WINTER - LAWMAKERS PASSED THE BIGGEST TAX REFORM BILL IN RECENT HISTORY IN LESS THAN 25 MINUTES - IF THERE IS A WILL TO DO IT THERE'S PLENTY OF TIME.

THE PUSH TO STOP ALLOWING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO GET DRIVERS' LICENSES... HAS COME TO A HALT. IT WAS A TIE VOTE FOR THE HOUSE COMMITTEE SATURDAY. BUT SOME COLLEGE STUDENTS-- CONTINUE TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR UNDOCUMENTED CLASSMATES AT SCHOOL. WE SENT NEWS 13'S SAMANTHA MCDONALD TO UNM TO FIND OUT MORE. A GROUP OF UNM HAVE VOTED 18 TO 2 TO PASS A BILL. THAT SUPPORTS THE RIGHTS OF ALL UNDERGRADS TO GET A LICENSE. ONE STUDENT SAYS MANY OF HER FRIENDS AND CLASSMATES ARE UNDOCUMENTED....AND HAVING A LICENSE WOULD HELP THEM GET TO SCHOOL. "UNM IS A COMMUTER CAMPUS AND SO IT'S WAS OUR MAIN GOAL AND MOTIVATION FOR PASSING THIS RESOLUTION," GOGOVERNOR SUSANA MARTINEZ HAD BEEN TRYING TO REPEAL THE 2003 LAW THAT ALLOWS UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS TO GET A LICENSE. THE CONCERN IS THAT THE LAW IS VULNERABLE TO FRAUD. "IT'S NOT AN IMMIGRANT ISSUE. THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD WHO COME TO THE US FOR OUR OWN DETRIMENT, AND THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE DOCUMENTED. THE HOUSE VOTED 4-4 ON THIS BILL...PREVENTING HHE LEGISLATURE SESSION IS SET TO END IN TWO WEEKS-- AND WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED HERE ON KRQE NEWS 13.
